What Previous Interns Have To Say

"My internship exceeded my expectations. I started this internship having little knowledge about the dairy industry and genetics. I now feel very educated to have intellectual conversations with people in the industry and the workplace about how to improve the dairy industry genetically. I have met some amazing people and truly been able to understand what it takes to have a career in this industry. I am proud to have been an ABS intern and to promote what ABS stands for."

Nathan Widiker

“I choose a career with Genus after my internship because it is a growing company in many ways. I enjoy being involved in this growth and finding ways to improve our organizational practices while leveraging my interests in tech, science, and data.”

Trent Schafer

“Genus is an invigorating place to work, there is a compelling mission behind what we do. The people in the company encourage you to keep learning, and you are surrounded by individuals that are very passionate about what they do. It is fast-paced and challenging, but always very interesting."
